Turkey Invades Northern Iraq In Operation Against Kurdish Militants
Turkey has launched a cross-border operation into neighboring Iraq against Kurdish militants in a mountainous northern region of the country.
The Turkish defense ministry confirmed its military unleashed a barrage of artillery fire and air strikes on Monday afternoon before ground forces entered northern Iraq to “demolish the caves and shelters that are being used by terrorist groups and to eliminate terrorists” — a reference to the outlawed PKK.
In Syria, Turkey has recently strained its relations with the United States over Washington's support to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), composed mainly of Kurkdish "People's Protection Units" (YPG/YPJ), which Ankara sees as but an extension of the "terrorist" PKK.
